Family members Joel, Kendra and Landon Wiland (and Max) of J. David Jewelry present jewelry-and-rose offerings that are sure to please your special Valentine.
J. David Jewelry in Broken Arrow makes shopping fun and value-packed with their exquisite gift offerings for Valentine’s Day. J. David is family owned and operated by Joel and Kendra Wiland. Valentine’s Day is very special to the Wiland family, and they make it very special indeed for their customers. This is the sixth year that J. David has offered a dozen beautiful
long-stemmed red roses with each $250 merchandise purchase from J. David Jewelry – while supplies last. Although they order 400 dozen roses each year, you’ll need to shop early to ensure a dozen for your Valentine. When they run out, that’s it! When you make your early purchase at J. David, you’ll receive a voucher so you can claim your bouquet of a dozen roses on February 12, 13 or 14.
J. David is also offering a special Valentine’s Day package that includes a 24-karat gold foil rose with hand-formed petals gift packaged in a satin lined box, with a pearl necklace and earring set for only $100. J. David brought the gold rose to the Tulsa area in 1997. It is a genuine rose dipped and preserved in a 24-karat gold plate and makes a great gift your Valentine will cherish for a lifetime. These gifts are limited so shop early.
Pandora jewelry items always make popular gifts. You can mix or match charms on bracelets, earrings, and necklaces. Women love to add charms for special occasions to their Pandora bracelets over the years. Joel says that Pandora has added seven brand-new charms designed expressly for Valentine’s Day. You can shop for Pandora jewelry at J. David Jewelry in Broken Arrow or at Joel’s Pandora store located in the Woodland Hills Mall.
Another gift option is one of Joel’s creations appropriately named the “Jewels of Light” candle. Each candle is in a glass container that has a genuine gemstone in the bottom. One of every 1,000 candles holds a diamond gem of at least a half karat. All profits from the sales of these special candles go to the Little Lighthouse.
A hot new fashion item this year is the Alex and Ani Bracelet, and J. David is the first in Tulsa to carry them. The products are an east coast phenomenon that is spreading across the country. Each bracelet has charms with a special theme or story and makes a great, inexpensive Valentine gift.
After serving the metro Tulsa community for more than 20 years, Joel says, “We are still the only jewelry store in the area that is truly full-service. Everything we do is done in-house from start to finish. That includes designing and manufacturing custom jewelry items, watch repairs, jewelry repairs, and replacing watch batteries.”
J. David also makes jewelry for the stars as they perform at the Tulsa BOK Center. Some of the recipients of his custom creations include Carrie Underwood, Justin Bieber, Rascal Flatts, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Eric Church.
Take a hint from Cupid – you can’t go wrong with jewelry and roses for Valentine’s Day. Shop soon before demand overruns the supply of red roses. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.
